I swear to god, anymore I’m automatically suspicious of anyone who writes “Serious question,” “Honest question,” “Honestly curious,” or any variation thereof. It’s like a verbal tic for bad-faith trolls.

I need to give some props to this meme. It is such a good question. Why are there no biohazard bins for discarded masks? A perfectly reasonable thing to ask. It's missing the second vital component though. Taking 5 seconds to look up the actual fucking answer, reading it, and then going: "oh yeah that makes perfect sense".

This Covid-downplaying meme comes from the Tucker Carlson school of un-journalism. Just asking questions. Just asking questions as a means of implying Covid can't be that dangerous because there are no biohazard bins for masks and gloves. And then not bothering to provide the legitimate reasons why there aren't. Reasons even a child with a 1 minute attention span could easily understand.

So the thing is, medical waste containers are used for items contaminated with hazardous infectious materials such as blood or other internal body fluids, used needles, etc. Covid spreads through droplets carried through the air. Unless your masks and gloves are full of contaminated blood it doesn't need to be disposed of like medical waste.

That's the short version. See how easy that was? See how making this meme probably took 20 times longer than finding out the answer to the question it poses? Take a look at the share numbers of the major FB vectors and weep for the intellectual prowess of everyone who shared this meme.

Yes, we washed our groceries too. We didn't know whether it was necessary or not, so we decided to err on the side of caution, just in case. Once it became clear it wasn't really necessary we stopped doing it.

u/A-man-of-mystery Covidious Albion Sep 24 '22

Yes, I'm talking about using sanitising wipes too.

It's much less likely than breathing it in, but it would be possible to catch it that way. In particular, by picking the virus up on the end of your fingers and transferring it to your eyes, nose, or mouth; which is why the advice was also to avoid touching your face.

13

u/RogerClyneIsAGod2 Team Moderna Sep 24 '22

Not touching your face is good advice in general pre or post pandemic, & especially now that cold & flu season is upon us.

This goes double if you have children in school. They're just walking germ factories at a certain age & will give you every type of creeping crud they can get into.

3

u/A-man-of-mystery Covidious Albion Sep 24 '22

Yes, it is excellent advice on general. Which is why they emphasised it, at least at the start of the pandemic.

u/Fickle_Chance9880 Sep 25 '22

It’s good practice for the time when super bacteria spread due to rampant misinformation and greed.

Bacteria last quite a while on surfaces, and spread via open skin and mucus membranes. So that will legitimately call for wiping down plastics if it were widespread and dangerous enough.

Never hurts to be careful and know the proper protocols for various emergent situations. It’s not about living in fear: it’s about living as long and as healthy as possible.

Not trying to be excessively alarmist or promote unnecessary cleaning of groceries and surfaces. But knowing how to do these things and occasionally putting them into practice is generally a good idea. Like, say, for example, in countries where people have always worn masks when they’re feeling sick, they don’t immediately lose their absolute shit at the thought of wearing one during a pandemic.

You are a terrible horrible person, and I don't know whether to throw up or laugh uncontrollably. Probably something in between (like having another beer), so I don't upset the quadrupeds.

"Sweaty" for "sweetie" was the final nail in the coffin. If it was unintentional, your brain is subversive and evil. If intentional...we should all be very afraid.

But, that's proof that wearing masks is more dangerous than the Jina virus, don't y'all see that? There was this one guy who died of throatyitis after wearing a disposable mask for eight or nine weeks, an' he went to school with someone who once walked past a friend of my sister's hairdresser's dog walker's cousin, so it must be true.

Also people don't throw away shit as it is. If they're not tossing it into a regular bin, they're not gonna bother with a biohazard one.

Exactly what I was thinking. I see masks on the ground all over the place (I don't mean to imply there are piles of them, it's only a few, but we see them EVERYwhere we go)!

21

u/djheat Sep 24 '22

The real answer is that very little actually requires disposal in a biohazard bag. This page actually has a good rundown on it. Bandage with some blood on it? Not a biohazard. Bandage saturated or dripping with blood? Biohazard. Even if you could tell a mask had coronavirus hiding in it, it wouldn't be a biohazard unless it was somehow expelling the virus out causing an infection risk, otherwise there's no reason you can't just toss it in regular trash

u/backmenz Sep 24 '22

Maybe already covered, but I have heard that the Covid virus doesn’t last long on surfaces.

u/Confident_Fortune_32 Sep 24 '22

We knew early on in 2020 exactly how long it lives on surfaces. Spoiler alert: not long.

It did take longer for the research to prove it is spread in aerosolized form and that, in the absence of excellent airflow, it sits there right at head level indoors for up to sixteen hours.

Admittedly the CDC messaging, overall, stunk.

That's why I gasp did my own research. I followed multiple epidemiologists and reputable universities' epidemiology departments around the globe.

It's easy when you have the internet in your pocket.

u/BeedoBeedoBoi Sep 25 '22

Funny enough, at the COVID-19 testing lab, we still dispose of PPE coming into direct contact with any COVID-19 patient samples in biohazard bins, even if no contact is made with the sample contained itself.

Early in the pandemic we even went to the extra length of separating these items from "normal" biohazard waste and quarantining them for disposal in their own bin.

Of course, items such as masks and gloves in use by the general public likely carry many fewer infectious particles and it isn't strictly necessary that they are "properly" disposed of so yeah, these memes are dumb haha

u/dumdodo Sep 24 '22

They are dumber than lemmings. The Disney film crews had to pick the lemmings up and throw them over a riverbank (near Calgary, 1000s of miles from the Arctic) to create the infamous "documentary" that started the lemming myth.

These people? They're hurling themselves over the cliff. No film crew needed.

I knew that the lemming suicide was fake, but now I know the details.

In England & Wales there is still a law on the Statute Book (1933) banning the shooting of animals from an aeroplane. In the 1930s there was a fad for, in effect, animal snuff films where that and other enormities were served up as “entertainment” …

I never thought I would manage to lose sympathy for those victims of disinformation who lost lives and loved ones due to their own ignorance. But you know what? I am so. fucking. over. it. All I can feel right now is anger. I don't want to be like this. I don't want to be as hateful as these people. I'm sure it's partly because religious trauma has been kicking my ass particularly hard recently and all I can hear in these posts are the voices of my "god fearing" abusers.

So you know what? I'm going to give myself the space to be bitter and resentful until I can work my way through the particularly brutal PTSD episodes I'm currently struggling through. I'm going to allow myself to judge the fuck out of these selfish mourners. Boo fucking hoo. Someone you cared about died because of your actions. Do you care about everyone else you killed? Do you feel any guilt at all for the pain you inflicted on those families? So forgive me for extending the same compassion you've shown to others: none. Sorry not sorry you've finally become a victim of your own bullshit.

...The thing is, I know that I'm mostly feeling so hateful right now because I'm just so hurt and broken and tired that I just don't have the energy at this time to nurture the kindness I value. And deep down, I recognize that I'm as angry for them as I am at them. I also know myself well enough to know that I'll work past this hatred and return to a place of sympathy and compassion.

I'll keep the fury though. Sometimes it's justified.

u/Fickle_Chance9880 Sep 25 '22

Take my wildly inappropriate “wholesome” award, because these feelings aren’t exactly heartwarming or positive. But they are very real and understandable. We here at HCA go through this a lot, don’t we? It’s kind of the whole point.

I was recently posting in another sub about writers, fictional and real, who’s works express a deep anger and cynicism. What I said was that often what presents as cynicism is actually the expression of sadness and disappointment from someone who deeply believes in the great potential of human beings.

If you don’t occasionally feel rage at how small people make themselves, there’s something wrong with you.

^This.
I know I can still feel love, compassion and sympathy. I volunteer at a Special Needs Cat Sanctuary, and I feel these things for the injured and disabled cats that come in. We currently have a recent amputee (lost a front leg) who's just been released from quarantine. He's super sweet and snuggly, but a bit shy. So I've spent some time holding & cuddling him, letting him know it will be ok, he's in a safe space and we'll take good care of him.

But I'm simply done feeling anything but contempt for these morons.
They chose to ignore legitimate advice. To disregard good information. To actively spread lies and falsehoods.

They've earned their fate.

It's going to take me a long time to get past my hatred of these fools.

Covid-19 is like eating raw cookie dough.

Actually, according to CDC, there are about a total of 3,000 deaths per year by food-borne diseases (not just e-coli and/or salmonella, and not just from eating raw cookie dough) - probably only about 30 deaths per year are from actually eating raw cookie dough itself.

Compared to # of deaths by Covid so far... I think there's a substantial difference here.

Edited to add: per year.

Edited to correct # of deaths per year. (3K, not 38K). Still a lot, though.

Yes. I should have added this quote, from the same webpage:

Every year, an estimated 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) get
sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die from foodborne diseases.

If you ask them, they will undoubtedly say, “Well, you put a exclamation point when you want to say something important!” with a completely straight face.

Probably but it makes it profoundly uncomfortable to read, especially when it has the dreaded exclamation points plus emoji combination. Like “Dad passed today!!! 😭 😭 😭 “

“My heart is broken into a thousand pieces. It’s hard to breathe…”

I would’ve maybe left the “hard to breathe” part out when talking about a Covid death. Then again, I’m built different (like a sheep)

Are they expecting an entirely new nationwide waste-stream (at least new for everywhere but medical facilities), separate bins and separate collections everywhere, to be set up overnight? What is wrong with these people?

Nah, forget about biohazard bins. I see discarded masks and stuff in the street. It grosses me out so bad. We need to work on them getting into any bin first, then we can do the biohazard bins.

Delta was really something. These jamokes went from shitposting to dead in 6 weeks or less

Some of the death announcements are really really sad. I'm not sure all of those people were assholes.

No, but they did act like they were.

Isn’t 13 an unlucky number?

[/spock mode on] It's neither lucky nor unlucky because the notion that numbers have that quality is a form of magical thinking or superstition. [/spock mode off]
